Has anyone ever created a JaffyDOS.bin using the JaffyDOS patcher under Vice?

As seen by the screenshots below, I've been trying for hours and have effectively got nowhere. No matter what I do I get a 'Wrong file or I/O Error.'

Posting some screenshots, can anyone see what I'm doing wrong?

And yes, it's a legitimate JiffyDOS ROM file that I bought. Any advice would really be appreciated before I slam my head in the door.

Well, after mucking about with Dirmaster to create a D64 with the patching utility as well as the .BIN rom file - Which oddly enough didn't work; I checked file permissions, found an issue and tried the procedure under VICE again and success!

At last I have JaffyDOS 1.3 installed complete with the black default screen with blue text that I've wanted on my C64 since I was about 14 years old. Much easier on the eyes as well as the good old 1084S. Gotta think of that tube, they're getting rare now.
